Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0544812115, Paperback)

“If you need to fall in love with reading again—or just want a reminder that high school students deserve a lot more than their reading lists give them—then this is the book for you.” —Bust

Guest editor Rachel Kushner, author of The Flamethrowers, works with a group of high school students out of 826 San Francisco to select The Best American Nonrequired Reading 2015. The BANR Committee gathers weekly in the basement of a small publishing house in San Francisco to read literary magazines, chapbooks, graphic novels, blogs, transcripts, and anything else that strikes their fancy. They are assisted by a group of 826 students that meet in the basement of a robot shop in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

(retrieved from Amazon Fri, 30 Sep 2016 17:56:55 -0400)

Presents a selection of short works from mainstream and alternative American periodicals published in 2015, including nonfiction, screenplays, television writing, fiction, and alternative comics.
